Eight military airfields have been repaired in Ukraine this year
This year, repair works have been carried out at eight military airfields in Ukraine.
Repair and restoration works on runways, aircraft parking and taxiways are underway at several military airfields at once.
In total, during 2021, some engineering and airfield battalions carried out repair work at eight airfields. Work is underway on four more.
For the construction, repair and operation of military airfields, the allocated financial resource is about 12% of the total need. Despite this, about 35,000 square meters of artificial airfield surfaces were repaired.
The servicemen of the repair crews replaced, installed and repaired several thousand airfield slabs, concreted hundreds of square meters of pavements and performed almost 4,000 cubic meters of earthworks.
Repairs to the runway of the joint airfield in Havryshivka, Vinnytsia Region, have recently begun.
The airfield in Gavryshivka is of common use, is the property of the Ministry of Defense and is used by KP “Vinnytsia Airport” together with the transport aviation brigade of the Air Force. Currently, construction equipment is actively working on site – dismantling slabs and milling the existing strip. Reconstruction of the main taxiway and platform is planned in the coming months.
In March 2021, it became known that the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is buying PAG-14V and PAG-18V aerodrome plates for UAH 13.5 million. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine purchases these products from contractors.
